i actually would like harsher punishments for pros coz they should be representing fair play and other "virtues" :P specially when someone is in owl
Agreed. It is actually quite annoying when you hear pros talk about how bad Ranked is, on their streams, but are 100% part of the problem and are the only ones with the platform to actually make ranked better. I do see some of them doing their part, but this is just 1 example of many, of them making it worse.
this link has clips of him throwing in case anyone wants it.
I feel like his temper has been getting worse lately. I know he has always been crazy loud and all, but he still tried really hard to stay competitive in his matches. He really needs some mental support. Unless he get proper supports, he seems to be getting pretty close to do something like what Dafran has done. He actually is an incredibly talented player, which was shown again in the preseason. I just hope he can get some help with his mental stability.
And this idiot is in OWL......
He is in OWL because he is a good player. People with such personas are always slipping at somepoint and you are already crucifying him.
My point is that this kind of attitude doesn't seem professional at all. Ok he is a good tank player, but there are also a top tier tanks without retarded personality like KnOxXx, FCTFCTN or even Kaiser and any of them would be a better representant of OWL for me.
20 million buy in and they can't afford a therapist to keep people mentally stable.. he's obv not healthy.
how is it blizzards fault that xqc acts like like child?
Not blizzards fault, but he's clearly not mentally stable. He's doing things that a healthy adult wouldn't do. I would assume it'd be in blizzards interest to keep their assets from being too wild.
Maybe not directly on Blizzard but it definitely reflects very poorly on Dallas Fuel although from what I saw in another clip xQc said something along the lines of "Kyky is DMing me non-stop but I'm going to ignore it" so maybe he is just really out of control.
Xqc well being in question is dallas fuel's responsibility. Blizzards responsibility is to uphold the integrity of the game. Therefore the punishment. Dallas needs to pull up its boots and make a statement that they are actioning Xqc through punishment or treatment or whatever is the best for him and the team. He should also be cutting back on his streaming time. The community in his stream is clearly not helping him.
"He should also be cutting back on his streaming time". Good call, now one of the biggest streamers on twitch. Who cares about OWL when he makes 10 times that on streaming. In the end it's about working and getting paid (and loving what you do sure, but he love both OW and streaming so..).
Then sitting behind your computer and judging him saying "he needs treatment". He's super competetive, no one gets as angry when they loose and no one gets as stoked when they win as him. When your that into the game on such a competetive level and you're a emotional human, you get tilted AF sometimes when everything goes wrong. I play csgo on high ranks and when everything is shit I smash the table and say stuff but there's not one that knows me that consideres me mentally insane and think I need "treatment". Sure he needs to control his rage to an acceptable level but dont judge him like he's a lunatic when you don't know shit.
Smashing your table because you have lost a match means you have genuine issues dealing with emotions.
You make me think xQc got banned again recently. It's not the best idea to open 10-month old threads
Always felt this guy was a massive tosser and questioned him being in the OWL over better and more reliable/respectful players yet all the fanboys claimed it was a good move because he's a popular streamer with a decent fan base, isn't looking so good now is it.
We need to get away from this favouritism towards big streamers acting like they single handedly keep OW going, much the same with Seagull before people acting like he's an OW god and helped make the game big and that, I feel we massively exaggerate how important streamers are to a particular game and that only inflates their ego which probably happened here.
Simply put, fuck the streamers and bring in better players, OWL is all about the best in the world not most popular.
I'd say skill wise he's up there, now is that worth the inherent risk he brings with his periodic volatility? That I'm not sure. I used to really dislike the guy and for a while he had settled down but "recent" events just brought me back to my original opinion.
More than anything I think the players need help coping with the added dynamics of being an OWL player and the standards they'll expected to uphold. Probably not an easy thing for a bunch of kids that play video games at the highest level, but obviously necessary.
Would be nice that they ban everyone who does this kind of stuff, unfortunately banning 10% of the community isn't an option.
In light of how he's been acting lately it's looking like I need to find someone new to use my prime sub on :thinking:
What makes me really sad is that he is one of the most talented tank players in NA. His rein is good, his Winston is very off/on. Sometimes he will play really well and make great plays, other times he will just feed. I also this that he plays around shields and walls better than any other tank I've seen. To me, however, it's his Orisa that stands out. His Orisa is godly, best i've ever seen. Sad to see his character get in the way. Hopefully he rebounds like Dafran
Reminder that Sado was suspended for 30 matches.
What he did is completely different though. I dont know how the reaction would have been if i SADO was European or
NA ladder player. Since Koreans EXCLUSIVELY despise paid boosters.
Get the feeling Sado was hated by everyone for doing very little wrong in my eyes yet this guy is toxic on every stream and has felt the wrath of Blizzard more than once yet people still defend him and act like he did nothing wrong, pretty sure if the roles got reversed and Sado was this toxic in Korea people would be screaming for harsh punishment but because it's a popular streamer nobody seems to give a shit.
Look at Dafran, he's still popular and a player most people want in the OWL yet if you do some account boosting it's a lot worse? bullshit. What Sado done is nothing in comparison but it's times like this where it pays to be popular.
I don't think people watch dafran because he is a good person, people watch him because he is entertaining and one of the best 76/tracers out there. but I do think that xqc should be benched for being banned more than once by blizzard for his toxicity and throwing
Boosting is equivalent to doping in the old sports, so I'm sorry but no is not "nothing", please dont' let it get out of hand.
That doens't mean we should condone throwers/toxic players 'cause it's more or less severe than Boosting, if you are a private player, well worse for you, but if you are a pro, you should be held accountable for your incorrect behaviours.
I'm giving XQC the "benefit of the doubt", saying that he looks like someone who might need some help in his personal and working life, 'cause if it's not that, well it's even worse he's doing it for the money, so...
Well hit them where it counts, a fine should suffice, proportionate to what they get paid of course (nothing life breaking), if he repeats it, a bigger one, a 3rd episode? Out of the team/league.
